Itty Bitty Book Review: The Foreign Correspondent

"The Foreign Correspondent" by Alan Furst

Great summer of his spy novels set in the time just before WWII. I can see why he has quite a following. Quite intriguing for character, plot, and especially setting. How can you not love a novel(especially if you love Paris!)that starts:

"In Paris, the last days of Autumn; a gray, troubled sky at daybreak, the fall of twilight at noon, followed, at seven-thirty, by slanting rains and black umbrellas as the people of the city hurried home past the bare trees."
